• I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"


    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.


1994 Indy 500 EFI troubles

Mar 9, 2016
I've got a 1994 Indy 500 EFI that I am struggling to get running properly. Here's a video of what I am seeing:


It starts and idles well, but its like its hitting a rev limiter at 4000rpm. Its getting spark in both cylinders, has 119# compression evenly between both cylinders. when I disconnect the fuel supply line and run the pump it shoots a steady stream of fuel.

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

I had one of these and rallied it for several years. It does seem odd the way it pulses up and down like that. Assuming you tried new plugs. I don't know your experience level but first rule out the clutching by removing the drive belt and see if it revs up. Just be careful not to let it overrev. Any engine problem can be clutching, it's basically impossible to know the difference. It could be a broken primary spring, for example. I have had weird things like exhaust pipe full of water or gas, so if it still won't wind up with the belt off, check that. Could be a big puddle in there. Also take off the air box and make sure there's not a mouse nest in there or something. If none of that helps that's as far as I can help you. If it is the clutches, I can help diagnose and repair that. Since it's EFI it could be the fuel pressure regulator or the electric fuel pump is not pumping strong or consistent enough. With EFI it needs pressure, not just obviously flowing fuel.

Replace the battery. With out a good battery it will not rev up past 4000. One way to test before removing battery is to put a booster on the battery and see what happens.
